In 1912, Mrs. Appleton traveled to England with her sisters, Mrs.John Murray Brown and Mrs. Robert C Cornell to attend the funeral of another sister, Lady Victor Drummond, who had there there. Returning home, the three sisters booked passage on the Titanic, and boarded in Southamptom. On the night of the sinking, the three sisters and Miss Evans(friend) were on the boat deck following the collision. During the final hours, Mrs. Appleton and Mrs. Cornell became separated from Mrs Brown and Miss Evans. The two sisters searched Lifeboat 2, which was among the last to leave the sinking vessel and were helped into it. Meanwhile on boat the Titanic, Colonel Gracie found Mrs. John Murray and Miss Edith Evans and escorted them to the last boat to leave the Titanic.Seeing as there was only room for one more lady, Edith turned to Mrs. Brown and told her "You go first, you have children waiting at home". Mrs. Brown was helped in and Collapsible D left the Titanic at 2:05am, Edith Evens would never find a space in a lifeboat, and she went down with the great vessel when it sank at 2:20am.
Following the sinking, Charlotte Appleton continued to live in Bayside NY.
